the voters who are already obama voters, so people like latino voters who lean obama but might not vote anyway, they're trying to get them energized to go out and vote. union voters. then women who are already leaning to obama. the second point is to get early voters out to the polls because that's where the obama team feels like their machine, their ground game, actually makes a difference. they think they have the numbers. the question is can you get them there on election day, if not, get them out early. that made a big difference in 2008. they're trying to do it again this year. then you mentioned women voters. this is where they think the margin of difference can come in. there are a lot of undecided women voters, they think a margin of them and they trying to turn them at the very end, one way they are going to do it, bill clinton is hitting the trail with the president next week on monday. the first time the two men will stump together, going to three battleground states. we'll see that effort in action next week, anderson. >> jim, gloria, jessica, thanks. let us know what you th
latino voters from seniors, from women and from people concerned about the economy who want this economy to move forward, not backward, florida's going to stick with president obama and that's going to be in the win column for him on election day. >> both sides making aggressive points on where florida will go and both sides want it really badly, we shall see. congress woman debbie wasserman schultz, good to see you. >> you, too, thomas, good to see you. >> i want to bring in our political panel, democratic strategist chris cofinis, msnbc contributor and republican strategist susan del fino. i want to start with you, chris, because campaign fund-raising is poised to pass $2 billion, "b," that mark, the president caulk talking about campaign spending and i want to play it for everybody in his interview with brian williams that aired on rock center, take a look. >> the amount of money being spent in my campaign and mr. romney's campaign and the super pacs out there is ridiculous. >> so, there's been a lot of speculation, chris, about a big ad bomb from the governor. could that overcome the
%, but african-americans and latinos and women. i just want to make one final point though. it's so important. >> please. >> other thing that's so devastating i think about general powell's endorsement of president obama, this is somebody who knows something about what's going on in the middle east and the iraq war after the bush administration let him go out there and lie to the american people. >> just a bit. >> so point being, when he says i have taken a look at what obama is doing, which he said in his statement, i have taken a look at what romney is proposing, and i don't think that's the right way to go, this is -- he has been there. he has been a part of this, the beginnings of this war frankly going back to gulf war one. this is somebody who has deep knowledge about a war that has basically been a part of tanking our economy that we're finally digging ourselves out of. >> thank you so much karen finney, michelle cottle, and professor james peterson who rushed to the studio. thank you, sir. >> thanks, mare tin. >>> next, another day, another day without interviews from mitt romney. mor
2008. talk about how that is impacting this election. guest: 26% of the state is latino. this voting block has been shown to hear a lot about the economy, a lot about education. immigration does not rank as the highest this year of interest to these voters. it is an underlying across the board thing. are you saying the right thing on these topics. it is 2/3 versus 1/3 that the voters are split on this. this is what candidates are being -- candidates are fighting about. obama made a promise to address it in his first year in office and did not do that. he said he did not have time and did not have a cooperative congress. that has not stopped republicans who say, we can bring a comprehensive immigration reform, which is a term both parties defined differently. they are trying to make that a sales pitch. if you turn on spanish radio, you hear nonstop commercials from both sides. this is a swing state for the president and it is also a swing state for the senate and one of the congressional races on here as well. host: if we are talking with karoun demirjian from the washington son. you
and the president's kept in the race because of latino support in colorado as well. >> let's talk a little bit more, jonathan, about women in colorado and nevada, because the president has gone from double-digit leads to single-digit leads there, obviously still leading among women but you have a lot of attention being paid frankly because of things that people like mourdock has said, the war on women, do you think that will turn around? is the president going to expand his lead again? what's going on with the women vote in these key battleground states? >> that's an interesting question because i've been trying to figure that out as well. i mean, the republicans have handed the democrats in general and the president in particular plenty of material to show the contrast and the differences between the president and governor romney when it comes to women's issues and you remember from i believe it was the second debate when the president made the all-important pivot from talking about choice and women's health to economic issues. talking about how, you know, making contraception available to women i
cycles ago and you may remember george w. bush made a point of courting the latino vote. he was the texas governor and he even spoke spanish on the campaign trail. but governor mitt romney's position and the republican moves some of them on immigration and border control and health care, could be causing some problems and eroding some of that goodwill and the inroads that president obama -- president bush made in the latino community. that is the fastest growing part of the electorate and it is critical for president obama's campaign because he may, in fact, be banking, banking on latinos to win his re-election. the reason i can say that is because he actually made this extraordinarily telling comment to the "des moines register" in what at one point was an off the record interview, but that he and his campaign released. here's the quote -- but that raises some fascinating questions about mr. president obama's election strategy. our cnn contributor and daily beast senior columnist john avalon written a piece about this. i encourage you for wait for this interview to be over and then to yo
. the president has been able to stay even with romney by winning big margins with latino voters and leads among them, 63/34 in colorado and winning ready for this with latino voters in neve day by 74/23. anyway the race for colorado tighteninged. why has it become such a close race? romney has gained among key groups since we last polled a month ago by 14 points a month ago, 54/40. it's been cut in half and the president only leads by 7 points. now, the president led independents, 50-39. now, that 11-point margin is a virtual draw and romney is up a point among independents. leader of the marist poll joins me now. colorado, we sit here, we talk about ohio, lee, we talk about -- but colorado, tell me this, what was the raw vote difference between the two because obviously statistically 48/48, a total tie? >> single digits. one handful. i think what's interesting, we talked about ohio throughout the campaign as being the bellwether, but, you know, obama is sort of getting in ohio what he got last time. and that may be because of the car industry and the whole auto bailout. around the rest of the
in the stand and say people are voting for barack obama because he's black. or he has the latino vote because he's minority. >> cenk: that's also interesting. maybe the idea is, look, you couldn't possibly vote for obama if you cared about policies or issues or results. only people who vote for him are blacks and latinos who are doing it based on race. maybe that's the dog whistle they want to send out there. there is one other thing i want to talk about. steve wynn owns a lot of casinos including the wynn in vegas. they've put out a pamphlet, a 67-page pamphlet in how to vote. it says the prefer candidates support policies that promote a friendly business and living environments to wynn resorts our approximately 12,000 employees and gaming industry as a whole. they're in nevada, which is a swing state. that's a wink, wink, nod, nod, vote our way or we might fire you. they didn't say who to vote for on the presidential ticket, but i don't know if you could figure it out in this report watch. >> i created 250,000 direct and indirect jobs. that's exactly--the number is 250,000. that's 250,000 m
to offend latinos almost as much. that's damaging in this campaign. that's going to be devastating in four years and eight years and beyond if all they are left with is white men in the republican party and it's not going to win elections for you. >> isn't it more important, melissa, when you look at the sense of diversity and the quest for inclusion in this country of whites, blacks, latinos, guys gays, lesbians, straights, that the method that we're moving toward is an electorate that they are away from in this kind of strategy? >> the demographic diversity, so what you show there is completely accurate but this electorate is a different one. it's part of why we've seen intense voter suppression effort, because the idea is, if you can shrink that electorate out, push out young voters as the voter suppression efforts are doing, if you can push them out, then you may get exactly the kind of electorate where the gop could win. but more than that -- and this is critically important, white americans no longer like the idea, for the most part, of being in a party that is lilly white and associ
alienating latino voters. florida's latino population has exploded and a diverse latino population making up nearly 23% of the state and as we look at the diversification, it doesn't include cubans, puerto ricans and mexicans. is the latino population in florida solid leah for the president or is it likely that the president can make inroads. >> the community is solidly behind the president and they're behind the president for several reasons. first and foremost because the president's plans for the economy is built from the middle out. it helps middle class families and not just the top down approach that outsourced jobs and crashed our economy before. the hispanic community understands that just like the broader community and on immigration, this is a president that's committed to immigration reform and it's taken dramatic steps to help immigrants find a place in this country while governor romney's position is still one of self-deportation. he struggles to maintain that and the community here in florida have heard this loud and clear. >> we appreciate your time. >> my pleasure, thanks, th

then is the president leading with latino voters by incredible number around 60%. >> well because frankly my party has done an awful job in the last six or seven years. >> in way of division or how do you describe that? >> in terms of talking about some of the issues that we as latinos care about. governor romney has made it very clear he'll work with congress and both parties and he's demonstrated the ability to work across party lines to reach solutions. >> thank you so much. danny, ann, david, zachary. we have breaking news. maryland and virginia declare states of emergency ahead of hurricane sandy. bill karins says we're about to witness a storm evolution that has never been seen before. we have your intelligent new ur. and we have new information about voter intimidation in florida. i'll talk to the reverend al sharpton. he's on his way to florida for a massive get out the vote. join the conversation on twitter. since it's friday let's have a little house music. why not. ♪ no, no, no, stop! humans -- one day, we're coming up with the theory of relativity, the next... stop, stop, stop! my car! n

-american americans, and look at that, latinos are pulling ahead of african-americans. do you think they're lazy, violent, etc. sometimes the numbers improve in some categories and regress in other categories. the implicit one is for a quick second show the picture of a white person, black person, latino person and then show you a neutral person and ask you about the neutral person. if you come up with negative comments, and you're shown an african-american, it gives a sense of how they feel about african-americans. it's a fascinating study and it's the way that a lot of studies are done. interesting number. if you think we have gotten past racial feelings in america you're wrong. we didn't. and now the religion of president obama. what are the latest numbers? in 201026% thought he was protestant, which by the way is the correct answer. now we're up to 28% getting it right for the president of the united states of america. but unfortunately in the last two years more people think he's muslim up to 18% thinking he's muslim, and then 35% saying, i don't know man he's only president of the united s

and a lot of the modelling has underestimated the number of latinos and african-american voters. we have 8 million more latino voters, for example, voting in 2012 than we did in 2008. most of the polling models i've seen don't account for those kinds of democrgraphic changes. that's a reason no matter republican, democrat, no matter who you are, get out and vote. vote early if you can. if you can't make sure you get to the polls early on election day. that's the way this thing is going to get settled. >> okay, karen finny, always good to talk with you. >>> here's what we've been asking all of you all day. it comes on the heels of what i was discussing with karen. the popular vote versus the electoral vote. could it be a split election? here's what you had to say about it. rich mow net replies "can't help but think that high turnout in battle ground states may make popular vote versus electoral vote possible. advantage president. melvin tweets "unfortunately it could be. i also believe that indiana will go pbo again. one of these days indiana is going to matter." jim b writes "a popular ele

, it will be due to the latino vote. reporter: yes, there is a skeptical side of me that said that was all. they didn't then get reporters to focus on the wind. eventually put it on the record so they know that the latino section was a focused and apart that he wants focused on. but i do not think overall the ploy worked. if they were that good. if you look at the front page of the des moines register today, it does not seem too flattering. it is a split screen on the front page. one have says ronnie closes with optimism, the other half is a picture of president obama and says obama sharpens criticism. they are not really good pictures. now come of that paper could endorse president obama in coming days. but i don't know if the off the record thing work for president obama speech you iowa is very important in this home stretch. if you so much, good to see you. bill: he is precisely right about these battleground states and the advertisements. you can time it every time the station goes to a commercial break. i think you are exactly right. >> how many times can you get hit over the head wit
demographic groups in these final days. women, latino voters, and then, of course, getting out that early vote. soledad? >> and i'm sure that you expect to see more of all of this as we enter the final days. jessica yellin for us this morning. thank you, jessica, appreciate it. in a few moments, we'll be talking to congresswoman and dnc chairman, debbie wasserman schultz. she'll be weighing in on all of that. but first, john berman has a look at the day's top stories. >> all eyes on hurricane sandy, now starting to move into the florida straits. it slammed into cuba as a strong category 2 storm earlier this morning. two deaths now being reported, blamed on sandy. one in jamaica, another in haiti. meteorologist rob marciano is tracking sandy. rob, we want to know, is this coming our way. a powerful category 2 storm right now. >> in one way, shape, or form, it is. it's going to be a combination of things as we go forward. but first off, still a category 2 storm as it comes off the coast of cuba, into the bahamas. northerly movement at 18 miles an hour. 105 miles an hour sustained winds now. it w
in the latino and among the 18 to 29-year-old voters. they are just not enthusiastic at all about him. the president has got to get himself up above 50 and the strategy that he has adopted i think is unlikely to get him there. >> sean: we will get to that you mentioned that in your column today. first of all started with some of the swing states. how confident are you that florida north carolina, indiana, they turn blue to red. >> i would add virginia into that as well. republicans are well poised to take colorado and new hampshire today. >> and florida? florida, north carolina and virginia are in the republic camp and becoming more so virtually every day and particularly if you take a look at the early vote in florida. banking more votes but banking more people less likely to vote. that is to say more of the democrat early vote in most of these states. ohio for example, 42% of the early vote that the democrats are banked are people who have voted in three out of the last four elections. those are the people who are going to vote no matter what. what you want to be focused on is you w
-american vote for barack obama, 0% for romney. but the latino vote is crucial on the strategy you mentioned of nevada. look how many times the president's gone to nevada. he even prepped for the denver debate in nevada. little picked up on the press, but he went to cesar chavez's burial site up in the mountains of california. and with ken salazar, a great latino representative of colorado, his interior secretary, they saved all of la paz, cesar chavez, the great labor organizer's home in person tuity by the federal government, now a federal government. that played well in hispanic newspapers around the country because chavez is the martin luther king in many ways for latinos. so you see the president's 70% or more with latinos, and it could make a difference just in nevada alone being able to pick that up. >> you spent time with our president. and obviously, it's a great piece. what did you see in his eyes? what are we not feeling? did you see a guy empowered? nervous? just as guy to guy, you sitting there, walk away. >> he's unflappable. and he's ready to roll. i asked him about denver, wh
